Thoraflex™ Hybrid the Word’s First “Frozen Elephant Trunk” device with Aortic Arch Plexus.
Thoraflex™ Hybrid combines the benefits of the “Frozen Elephant” procedure with the Gelweave™ Siena Plexus graft to substantially increase solutions available in the treatment of complex diverse aortic arch disease.
The latter, of a multiple independent ring stent design, allows excellent anatomical conformability. The device is provided compacted within a short and malleable delivery system designed to enable fast and accurate deployment.
The multi-branch aortic arch Gelweave™ Plexus Siena graft, designed for fast arch vessel reconstruction and arterial cannulation, has been demonstrated to reduce ischaemia times, time to re-warming and overall operating times.
Differential graft to stent diameters cater for variable proximal and distal aortic anatomies; an important consideration for such procedures.http://scts.org/annual-meeting/
